37 companies employing 226 staff benefit from major telecoms upgrade in partnership with Rainbow Communications
One of Northern Ireland’s largest and most successful social enterprises, The Workspace Group, has laid the groundwork for a new era of business growth after investing in a major transformation of its telecommunications network that will support more than 37 businesses and 226 employees in Mid Ulster.
Partially funded by the UK Government’s Gigabit Voucher Scheme and completed in partnership with Northern Ireland’s largest independent telecoms services provider, Rainbow, the company has rolled out a new super high-speed digital and data network that gives it instant access to cloud-based services.
The investment provides the award-winning group and the companies located in their business parks with superfast and reliable broadband to improve digital data flows, file and resource sharing and reliability while also dramatically increasing the number of ways in which they can communicate effectively with their client businesses and customers.
By converging its landline network with the new high-speed network, The Workspace Group will also start to benefit from greater efficiencies, allowing on-the-go communications, greater productivity, reliability and flexibility. Cost savings from the investment will start to accumulate straight away.
Headquartered in Draperstown, Mid Ulster, but operating from 14 locations across Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland and Great Britain, The Workspace Group provides business support services and almost 100,000 sq. ft of office and industrial space to a wide variety of new and growing small and medium-sized businesses in their business parks in Draperstown and Magherafelt.
